Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge it
        Wow what a nice mild night, last night, windows open and a cool breeze, perfect for sleeping. Think it got down to 63 f (16c). we can handle that, just keep the windows open and fantastic fan running was a great night's sleep.
       This  morning got the coffees done and a walkabout, Walt was here to begin working at 8 am. After his walkabout the park too, with his dog (Maya)and said hi.
        Not far from here just south of us is the orchards. Cherries , peaches etc are soon ready . so we can hear the canons , should like shot guns going off every few minutes, Keeps the birds from ravaging the fresh fruit.
         Walt was right back at it again, this guy never stops.
looking good after his second day here
Waiting for Walt
       Walt is  a handy man/tradesman and sure knows his stuff. right to work from one spot to the next just keeps on going. kept Suzie and I busy helping out when we can.
Even Suzie got into it as well, on the  floors and removing staples and nails
from the old flooring.
      Me I helped when I could, staying out of his way, opening new boxes of flooring, taking old carpet to the dumpster running for parts etc..
entry way all done looks wonderful
Walt in the dinnette
     Walt has a seasonal site here and loves doing flooring., Yup he is very good at it and is a perfectionist. not only that very reasonable as well.
hard at it
    Around 3 pm our friend Gerry stopped by to tease Walt with a beer. He will not have a beer while he is working. So Gerry offers to remove the last of our carpet from the bedroom . Something that I was in no shape to do. He got right too it and an hour later all the carpet and underpad was removed, Thanks Gerry !
Gerry going right to it,
yup that is Gerry working !
     Now it was time to call it a day, time for a beer for all of us. Flooring is going better than we figured and is looking amazing ( in our opinion) sure beats the old dirty carpet that we can't keep clean. And really brightens up our house.
not done yet but looking better already    
tools still here hope to finish up tomorrow
bathroom and bedroom left to do
lots trim work
     I reinstalled the dinnette and cleaned things up looks up just looks so much better.
c
dinette back in place
          Eventually time for supper after 5 pm I found a package of Tuna helper in the cupboard so just added a lb of ground lean turkey , a mess if veggies and a nice easy meal after a busy day and just made a small side said to go with it.
what a nice treat for a change with no time to set up our Weber Q again
and of course leftovers for another meal
       Still very warm outside so posting this blog out here and gonna enjoy a relaxing book for awhile.
These old bones are pretty tired to day, gotta stay up as late as I can.
        Thanks for stopping by and checking out our flooring, If all goes welt will be wrapped up tomorrow .
Where have we been this summer ?

  3. That flooring will be way less maintenance than carpet. Even little sections of carpet in RV's are a pain to keep clean.
